Augsburg Ice Arena
Augsburg Ice Arena is located on the Augsburg campus near downtown Minneapolis, directly off of Highway 94 at 2323 Riverside Ave. The arena was completed and opened in 1974 and is unique among Division III colleges in Minnesota - and the nation - in that it is a two-rink facility with year-round ice. It is also one of only three on-campus ice arenas in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The Augsburg Ice Arena complex is used extensively, not only by the college's men's and women's ice hockey teams, but also by the Twin Cities community as well. Community groups, youth and recreational sports teams, figure skating clubs, and recreational skaters use the two-rink facility virtually every day of the year. The arena is also used often as a site for commercial, TV and movie filming. Perhaps the most famous use of the Augsburg Ice Arena came when Walt Disney Pictures used the arena as one of several Twin Cities rink locations for filming of the 1992 movie "The Mighty Ducks," starring Emilio Estevez.
